Contemporary Art 101
Contemporary Art 101 is our Members-only art history lecture series that offers a fun and eye-opening way to learn about the art of our time!
This spring, join us for Contemporary Art 101: Masterworks of 21st-Century Art in Context with art historian, educator, and art appraiser Sally Coleman, PhD, as we examine four of the most important contemporary works of art created in the last decade. We will look closely at each work of art, place it within a broad context of major contemporary art movements, and describe the way it intersects with artwork at The Contemporary Austin.
Dr. Coleman’s lectures will be enhanced with a wine and cheese offering! Wine is kindly provided by Austin Wine Merchant.
